'Fugitive of the Week' Surrenders at Federal Courthouse

NHJFTF LogoConcord, NH – Late this morning, “Fugitive of the Week”, Emmanuel Colon, 26 years-of-age, surrendered at the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH. Colon had been wanted on an outstanding federal arrest warrant issued on September 05, 2019 alleging sales of the synthetic narcotic - Fentanyl.

Mr. Colon was featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” on Wednesday, September 11, 2019. This feature was aired on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, the Manchester Ink Link, the Rochester Voice and prominently featured on the internet. The “Fugitive of the Week” continues to be a very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007. Additionally, the “Fugitive of the Week” is distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers.

After the feature was aired, the U.S. Marshals Service conducted interviews and surveillance in and around the Lawrence, Massachusetts area. It was as a result of these interviews that Colon learned that he was wanted and contacted the U.S. Marshals this morning. During this telephone call, Colon agreed to surrender at the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH, which he did. Mr. Colon is currently in custody pending his initial court appearance this afternoon on the outstanding narcotic charges.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 7,751 arrests (Updated as of 07/25/2019). These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 8 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
